We are going unless the weather is forecast for endless rain, which at the moment it isn't so fingers crossed.

Yep I'll be there in the GTV. Also with a Wizard exhaust! It would be quite interesting to hear yours to see if it sounds different to mine (if it is just a wizard cat back), I'm convinced my downpipes are rubbish and need changing. I think it's parking by model which will be great to see.

Also getting my girlfriend to bring the 147 down, so should be a great day.

Yep, heading up Friday for a long weekend.
Parking by model unless you turn up late!

It would be good to do a side by side comparison. So I'll keep an ear out for you

Yes, it is themed parking, unless your section is full. Then there are overflow parking areas. Gates open at 10.30am.

Took the opportunity to get Bella nice and shiny ready for Sunday.

Hopefully there will be a few more GTVs there and the weather will hold out.

Now where did I put that Greenflag breakdown number...!

Did plan on it but the weather in Cornwall today is ****, couple that with a 700 mile round trip & a couple hundred quid's worth of fuel & I'll be staying home this time.

Hmmm weather forecast for tomorrow is looking unfavourable

Don't fancy a long drive in the rain especially with the delicate wiper system !

I'll make the call in the morning but if it's raining I'll sadly have to give it a miss

Gutted was planning on going as in all the years with my alfas I have never been to a meet/event, and today I have been called into work!!! FFs!!

But I have been cheered up!!! On the way to work joining the m1 a rosso red car flash by....... That looks like a alfa?!? Hard to tell as it was going some.

So I boot it and catch up to a...............sz!!!!!

Woohoo what a sweet alfa! I have seen them in pics but in the flesh a real supercars!!

A good twenty min run and on the way up m1 passed a gorgeous purple blue 156 gta, I spent the rest of the run checking this car out overtaking and vice versa follow by a thumbs up and a wave as I left at Mansfield :-)

Made my day! What a car!

Have a great day today guys and don't let the weather put you off.

Beautiful cars in the most beautiful setting. The weather held out in the main. Not as many old models as there usually is, which was a shame, but a good turn out non-the-less.A few photos including my new little project the vela blu v6, looking 100% better than she did when I bought her and ran she like a dream all the way.
